The Girl Scout Silver Award is the highest honor for Girl Scouts in sixth through eighth grade. This year’s recipients addressed topics including mask awareness during the COVID-19 pandemic, provided seniors with outdoor experiences, beautified pollination gardens, placed a spotlight on gun safety, and provided support to the Ronald McDonald House.
Girl Scouts of the Jersey Shore presented the Silver Award to these incredible young women, Wednesday, November 17, at its Program Activity Center in Farmingdale.
To earn the award, Girl Scouts must fulfill several requirements, including taking on a community project that makes a lasting impact. In the process, girls develop organization and leadership skills that benefit their community. This year’s Silver Award recipients devoted over 2,650 hours toward making their communities a better place.
“Through their projects, girls in our council have made a lasting impact on our community,” said Eileen M. Higgins, CEO, Girl Scouts of the Jersey Shore. “These young women have shown dedication and creativity, and devoted hours of their time to creating lasting change. The Girl Scout mission, to build girls of courage, confidence, and character, who make the world a better place, has been made evident through this year’s class of Silver Award Girl Scouts.”
